Every healer develops his/her own techniques and discovers the things that work best for him/her self and his/her clients.
The first time you meet with a potential client, you may not appear to do much in the way of obvious healing practice at all. To begin with, you will find that you are engaging the client in conversation about all manner of topics. The primary reason for this, is to pick up as many clues and as much information as possible, about the nature of the injury or illness you have been asked to cure and something of the individual’s state of being.
|Illness & Injury
There are many reasons that people suffer injury or illness. However, there are also many symptoms whose causes are not clear. Given that I was once told that our natural state is one of health, why then do so many of us become afflicted with such a variety of illnesses?
Perhaps we should differentiate slightly here, between physical injury brought about through accidents and physical illness brought into being by less obvious activity. A third category I haven’t mentioned, is mental illness. For now, I would like to focus only on the first two. Having said this, a person’s mental state and attitude can greatly affect the outcome of any healing practice.
If your core belief is one of health, no matter what illness may come your way, you will always know that you will remain healthy (or recover if you accidentally get ill).
This concept is critical in everything you do in your life. A core belief about anything will override a superficial belief in your mind.
Know what your core beliefs are. If you find yourself always thinking in particular ways that do not suit you, or reacting in the same way to different situations, seemingly against your will, examine your core and make efforts to change it. One way is to use NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming).
A few examples of core beliefs in action:
Buying a lottery ticket but knowing that you cannot win – because you have a core belief that you cannot receive money without effort or you are destined to always be poor.
Trying to cross a river but knowing that it’s not possible for you to achieve – as opposed to thinking it’s not possible but, knowing that you will find a way!
Believing that you are not likeable whilst wondering why you are short of friends.
Thinking you might contract a major illness but, knowing that you will always be healthy.
In all of the above examples, notice both the subtlety of thought and the use in context of believing versus knowing.
“Wellness that is being allowed – or the wellness that is being denied – is all about the mindset, the mood, the attitude, the practised thoughts. There is not one exception, in any human or beast; because, you can patch them up again and again, and they will just find another way of reverting back to the natural rhythm of their mind. Treating the body really is about treating the mind. It is all psychosomatic. Every bit of it, no exceptions.”

The way in which a body becomes weakened or damaged, due to any number of ailments or diseases, is very interesting. Illness can begin from simple suggestions, right through to very complex circumstances.Unlike physical injury, illness and disease is sometimes more difficult to come to terms with. When you break a bone or scratch the skin, somehow everything is more tangible. When you have something like a cold or a cancer, it’s often more difficult to see, know, or understand, what is going on!It is very easy to come across in a flippant way when talking or writing about illness. After all, it is a serious issue for those suffering – whether it be the individual with the illness, a partner, parents, children, relatives, or friends and associates. However, I believe that it is important to have a broader understanding of why illness may have arisen in the first place, and through this, understand how it may be cured. Treating symptoms does not always heal the causes.
Without starting a long dialogue about cause and effect (which incidentally does not exist in terms you may have come to accept), I would like to look at the process that occurs when we receive a physical injury. Let’s take the example of me hitting my thumb with a hammer while nailing wood together:
Secondly, I might shout out before
Thirdly, grabbing my thumb with my other hand in an attempt to stem the pain.
Fourthly, my breathing and heart rate increases and
Fifthly, all my attention becomes focused on my injury.
So, now we can see the process, let’s deliberately go through the actions as if we have all hurt ourselves in the way mentioned. You don’t need a crystal wand for this or any special ability in healing:
The pain tells you something has happened and in this example, where it is. As you hold the injured area, control your breathing. Breathe in as described here , and as you breathe out, imagine healing energy travelling to the injured area. Repeat this several times. You will feel the pain intensify at first, but this will subside.
Another aspect of healing, is the use of hands.
Simple Sunlight Technique
Imagine bright morning sunlight shining down on you. Imagine the sunlight shining on your head. Feel the sunlight and its warmth. Take the sunlight down through the top of your head and imagine it going to any area of your body where you want healing to take place. To enhance this process, breathe in as you take in the sunlight and breathe out as you see it flooding to the area of injury or illness.
This exercise is very effective and can be used at any time – day or night.
Although unlikely to provide conclusive reasoning or evidence in just a few paragraphs, or change the views of those who put their faith exclusively in the empirical science of medicine, I would at least recommend considering what follows. If you disagree with anything I say, you still have the right to denounce it for whatever treatment you would prefer to put your belief in.
I do not advocate that you give up prescribed medication without first consulting your doctor.
Mind over Matter
Now ask yourself this. If such a reaction can be obtained simply by thinking about a citrus fruit or a sexual fantasy, what is there to stop your body from responding to other thoughts you may have?
Try it! Focus your mind on your stomach or the taste in your mouth – and start feeling a bit sick! Just think: ‘I don’t feel too good’. Don’t dwell on this. Now think: ‘I feel really good’.
Before we continue with how we can make ourselves better, let’s have a closer look at ways we can make ourselves ill click here..
Once you have looked at some of the things that may cause illness, consider those things I have mentioned that will help you to regain a healthy state – or even not become ill in the first place! Believe it or not, the choice is yours.
Using the wand with clients
The wand is held a few inches from the area to be healed. In the example shown above, the wand is moved from the higher part of the arm, along and down towards the fingers, and off the end. Specific focus is given to some areas – finished once again, by drawing the wand along and off the client.
